Undrafted out of Division II Northwood University (Mich.) of the Great Lakes conference, the 6-foot-4, 246-pound Wilson began his professional career with the B.C. Lions of the Canadian Football League in 2005.
Signed by the Washington Redskins in 2007, Wilson has 65 tackles, including 19 on special teams, and six quarterback sacks in 64 games over the last four seasons. All six of Wilson's quarterback sacks have come while playing defensive end in a 4-3 system, a role that he is expected to return to with the Eagles as the club lists him as a defensive end.
Last season, Wilson was moved to outside linebacker by first-year defensive coordinator Jim Haslett and posted 18 tackles and a pair of forced fumbles in 16 games.
The Eagles are in need of defensive end depth with 2010 first-round pick Brandon Graham on the physically unable to perform list as he recovers from a torn ACL and the placement of Victor Abiamiri on injured reserve with a torn Achilles' tendon.
Wilson visited the Seattle Seahawks late last week, but was not offered a contract.
